  • A beautiful lake set in the beautiful white mountains. So much to do besides fish. The hiking trails, picnic areas and horseshoe pits to name a few. Great family fun  more »
  • It's our "go to park" for kayaking, easy hikes around the lake and occasional elk viewing. Camp sites are concrete pads and well kept. Showers are very clean as well. Very nice overall!  more »
  • Very nice peaceful lake. Lots of places to walk. Good place to fish. Children would love it to fish and run.  more »

  • This place is absolutely stunning. Amazing scenery !! The family and I have been going for a few years now and are starting to make it a tradition. We love to Bicycle, kayak, fish and swim. The little shows and presentations they have on the weekends for kids are awesome. Best part for us is that it's not too far from town so in case of an emergency or you forget to bring something it won't take you very long to go get what you need. Can't wait to be back next year!
  • Great fishing, super quiet in the evening. Go during the week for no crowds. They have a fish cleaning area with a disposal and nice places to camp with fire pits bit you should bring wood as your not supposed to gather your own. Lots of catfish, bass and trout. If you need bait just wait for dark and hand catch crawdads with a flashlight at the shallows. Beautiful place by far.
  • This was such a beautiful lake. We drove up from Phoenix and were enamored with the reflections into the clear water. We loved the trail which was laid out and the many lookout points. This is a great place to grab lunch and bring it planning so relax for hours.
  • This is the cleanest, prettiest, easiest to access park we've ever visited. I highly recommend. The hosts are very helpful and do a spectacular job keeping park perfect. Not a single piece of trash in park area or around beautiful lake. Great place for working remotely, spending time enjoying the beautiful scenery, and many activities available!
  • Campground was very clean, and hosts were friendly. Lake is more of a large pond. Much smaller than I anticipated. Area is beautiful. Hot showers were a huge plus. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the lack of toilets. Only 1 male and 1 female in each campground. Made it rough on the holiday weekend. Always a line.
